Death of a story-teller... R.I.P. Art Donovan

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by Evil ... Thy name is Orville Redenbacher!!, Aug 4, 2013.

  1. I remember the ESPN commercials ..
    Berman or Jackson: Art, did you ever suffer a torn cruciate?
    Donovan: uh, uh, uh ... What the hell is a cruciate?

    Ah, shit. Used to love his appearances on Letterman to talk about football in the old days. They're dropping like flies, I swear.

    His book Fatso might be one of the funniest sports books ever written. I loved him on Letterman and Carson.

    Every sport needs a guy like Donovan. One of the all-time great characters in any sport.

    It's kind of amazing a big guy like that lived to be 89.
